Arsenal vs Leicester City: Match Preview and Prediction

Arsenal welcome to the Emirates stadium, Leicester City, for game week 9 in the English Premier League fixtures on Monday night.

The Gunners are currently in fantastic form after six consecutive League wins that has seen them settle in the 5th place of the League standings with 18 points ahead of the clash against the Foxes at the Emirates.

Arsenal’s impressive form has led many top pundits and bookmaker bonus codes to back the Gunners to secure all three points, placing them on an impressive 10 straight wins in all competition.

Before the international break, Arsenal traveled to the Craven Cottage where they thrashed the Cottagers 5 - 1. And this fixture at the Emirates presents a great opportunity for the Gunners to continue their unbeaten streak.

Coach Unai Emery has cleared the doubt concerning the return of Petr Cech going into this encounter, with the veteran goalkeeper ruled out of the Monday night clash. Also, Danny Welbeck is back training with the first team after a minor knock during his engagement in England’s squad during the international break.

The visiting side Leicester City were unable to secure a win at home against Everton before the international break. This was a huge backward slide after impressive wins against Huddersfield and Newcastle United.

Foxes boss, Claude Puel, is set to be without key stars Demarai Gray and Matty James who are both sidelined due to injury. While captain Wes Morgan will be on the bench as he serves a two-match ban.

The Gunner will certainly take the advantage of playing in-front of their home crowd, compelling them to impress their fans at the Emirates Stadium by securing all three points and moving back to at least 4th place on the Premier League table.
